1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

The Porsche 964 Turbo is identified by a lot of 911 purists as the last of the real 911 Turbos. When the 993 based Turbo arrived, all-wheel drive entered the equation and a bit of the challenge (or threat, depending on who you talk to) was taken out of the driving experience. The 964 Turbo isn’t a car you’d expect to find in a particularly feminine color. But that’s just what we have here with this 3.6 Turbo for sale in the UK painted in the striking shade of Rubystone. This is one of the 1990s Porsche colors I’ve always loved. Question is, are you male readers out there comfortable enough in your masculinity to be seen in a sports car like this?

Here at Specialist Cars of Malton we ensure our cars are the best quality cars in the country, this attention to detail has seen us voted Independent Porsche Sales Garage of the Year by 911UK members three years running!

We start off by picking the best cars for stock, of the 3 or 4 cars we get offered every day we buy only the best one or two a month.

Upon sale each and every car is taken to our workshops where it goes through our thorough 74 point check to make sure everything works as it should and is in good condition. Next the car is given a major service and the service book stamped accordingly. We carry out a 4 wheel alignment on the cars and an aircon service on cars with airconditioning. The car will then go to a local independent MOT station for a year’s MOT. We tax the car for a year and fill the fuel tank.

Next the cars go to our team of professional detailers who spend up to a week preparing the car cosmetically. Any stonechips are removed, the wheels refurbed if necessary and the wheel hubs are painted. The seats are removed and cleaned. Next the car is detailed using Zymol professional products to give a long lasting lustre.

Finally, and arguably most importantly, we warranty every car for a year from bumper to bumper, anywhere in the world. This is not a bought in warranty, we stand by each and every car we sell for a year.

Seeing this car makes me wonder if there were any left-hand drive 964 Turbos produced in this color. It was one of those arresting colors made famous by Harm Laagay in the early 1990s, so I wouldn’t be surprised. Turbos of this vintage have been pulling strong money in the US market, though not as astronomical as the later and more rare 3.6 models. For a car with such low mileage, we’re more than likely in the $150,000 to $200,000 USD range give the present market.

  1. The gray and pink is a head-scratching combination.

    In answer to the question, I could never drive this color, not because I am a man, but because I am simply not 6 years old. This florid and toxic shade of artificial pink is exactly the shade that dominates the feminine toys aisles in toys r us. It’s been research, tested, and marketed to death and it’s vile. It’s unnatural to the created world.

  2. Porsche had a lot of interesting colors. I actually like this Pepto-Bismol colored 911. I would not have a problem at all to drive it and it would not hurt my “masculinity”. I really would not care if other people like or dislike this color. IMHO it really sticks out big time from the boring whitesilverredblack crowd.
    I would prefer a little more un-boring interior color. Unfortunately the highway patrol can see you from 5 kilometers away and there is ABSOLUTELY no hiding in this car.

  3. I had a friend named Stand in law school. Stan was very tough. Stan had plastic knuckles from where another man’s teeth had been embedded in Stan’s hand after he punched him. Stan once worked as a bouncer and told his mother, “Hey, ma, I help people out.”

    Stan used to carry around a pink mini-Bic lighter because, as he said, “No one’s goign to steal it and no one’s going to laugh at me.”

    I’d drive this car.

  4. Ridiculous color. And of course it threatens my manhood. I’m a normal guy. Plus the steering wheel is on the wrong side.

  5. It beats the hell out of black, white, silver or guards red. People turned their noses up at viper green and tangerine, too….

  6. Your lipstick is showing.

  7. I feel sorry for any man who feels his masculinity “threatened” by this car. Lighten up, it’s just a car.
    You don’t have to wear a powder blue nylon leisure suit with oversized tennis shoes with suction cup soles.

  8. Apparently my attempt at some ironic humor went unappreciated. Oh well…..it’s still a ridiculous color!
